Brunello Riserva offers a solid, full body and excellent aging potential. Its ample and complex bouquet is reminiscent of violets, wild berries, cedar, leather, tobacco and spices. On the palate, it is austere and seductive with a perfect blend of fruit, acidity and mouth-coating tannins. This is the perfect bottle for Brunello lovers.

Wine SpectatorLots of plum and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a very fruity finish. A rich wine that still needs bottle time. Best after 2006. 1,500 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBegins with a light touch of raisin, while the mouth feels soft, albeit a touch tannic. Further inspection unveils a deeper, meatier side, but also a touch of stewed fruit. Finishes solid, with coffee and chocolate as well as a medicinal hint. Imported by Winebow.
